Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2-0



This is for the Chinese SM-N9300 Qualcomm model only! Do not flash on Exynos models!

WARNING #1: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your mobile provider to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.
You generally don't have to worry, as it's incredibly hard to brick a Samsung device, and physical damage warranties should be exempt from Knox triggering.

WARNING #2: The Galaxy Note 7 stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION: Follow the full rooting steps below in order to allow system modifications without the risk of a boot loop!

WARNING #3: When using custom kernels on the Note 7, never turn off developer options or OEM unlock. If you do, you will lose all your data and have to flash a full stock firmware restore to use your device again!


WHAT IS TWRP?

Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
In case you're serious, though...

Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

DOWNLOAD

You can find the device page here:
http://teamw.in/devices/samsunggalaxynote7china.html
There is a download link there, as well as instructions on how to flash it.

I highly recommend using Odin 3.12.3+ to flash when possible.
You can find a zip containing Odin as well as a link to Samsung's Mobile drivers page here:
https://idlekernel.com/flash-tools/

FULL STEPS FOR OBTAINING ROOT

Follow these instructions until someone nice comes along and makes a video from them (without ads):
  1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
  2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
    You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.
  3. You will need to unlock your bootloader now. To do this, download the app "CROM Service By Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd." from the Galaxy Apps store and run it.
    Follow the instructions in the CROM Service app to allow your device to accept custom images in download mode.
  4. Extract Odin_3.12.3.zip to your computer.
  5. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
  6. Download a .tar image of TWRP for graceqltechn.
  7. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
    Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
  8. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot and disable Auto-Reboot, then press [Start].
  9. Hold [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] to get out of Download mode and immediately swap to [Volume Up] when the screen blanks.
    If you don't see then TWRP boot splash try again from step 7.
  10. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
    By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow step 10 you will be unable to boot!
    If you are going to root your device and follow the rest of these steps, then it is safe to swipe right and enable modifications.
  11. If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
    Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.

    If you want to be rooted with something else or just want a bootable system:
    Download the latest no-verity-opt-encrypt zip.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the no-verity-opt-encrypt zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    It will allow your system to boot after swiping to enable modifications or using backup/restore in TWRP.
    It should also allow you to use [Format Data] and prevent encryption, allowing you to use your data partition and internal storage inside TWRP.
  12. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
  13. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.
* MTP, known as Media Transfer Protocol, is the same way you transfer files from your PC to your device when booted into system.
